This is Grimm 7.0, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro with a crazy Mercury Racing engine producing a ridiculous amount of horsepower. The car was first shown on AutotopiaLA in an episode where they documented the construction process for SEMA. We are given a complex and thorough explanation of how this car came to be in the first video, and we can even hear it start up. Unfortunately, we were left wondering about the car’s driving characteristics without receiving much information. Fortunately, Shawn was able to rip on this high RPM beast in the most recent AutotopiaLA channel feature of this car. Hold on to your car seat covers—this is a powerful build!
The car’s 750-horsepower Mercury Racing SB4 engine is what powers it, as was already mentioned. A set of HRE wheels can be spun by the naturally aspirated, LS-based dual overhead cam engine when it is coupled to a Tremec T56 manual transmission. A Ford 9-inch rear end and 3.73 gearings keep the vehicle stable. On top of Corvette suspension, the chassis is a specially made Roadster Shop chassis. Bear Brakes give you the ability to stop.
To make the car’s rear more angular and better fit the body lines, the rear bumper was lowered from the outside. The colors are made to stand out by using a lot of gold, blue, and carbon fiber. The shop chose Tesla handles because the owner insisted on flush door handles. Starting with a dash made of aluminum that was specially machined by Carlos Dominguez, the interior has been expertly crafted by hand. After that, hand-stitched leather with a carbon fiber interior was put on top of the exposed metal. Two modified Recaro racing seats with carbon fiber backs serve as the seats. The console’s intricate and exotic feel is enhanced by Lamborghini switches and Ferrari vents.
The total cost of the interior work exceeded $100,000. We hope to see more images and videos of the car and its numerous adventures in the future.
